This time, we conducted a survey of 100 factory managers, engineers, and designers involved in water treatment work on issues related to factory “water treatment”.
About 90% of the factories involved in water treatment work have permanent water treatment facilities, and we learned that they have had trouble using their own water treatment facilities. As specific experiences, they mainly mentioned “water quality deterioration” and “deterioration of facilities”, and also voiced concerns about “sludge treatment” and “environmental pollution”.
Now that SDGs are being called out, the environmental impact of water treatment methods is also attracting attention. In addition, since the amount of wastewater treated is increasing year by year, many voices were raised about the issue of proper water quality management. At present, manpower is expended on the maintenance of many facilities in factories, but in terms of specialized water treatment problems such as “management of regulatory values” and “insufficient treatment capacity”, replacement of parts alone cannot solve them. It may be difficult, and specialized knowledge and systems may be required. Read this article if you want to learn the basics of water treatment [Image 5
“Water is essential for us to live.” In addition to being important as drinking water, water is extremely important in various situations such as domestic water, agricultural water, and industrial water. On the other hand, it is also a human responsibility to return dirty water to nature in a clean state. The process of restoring water to a clean state is called “water treatment.”
If you want to know what water treatment is, the troubles that are likely to occur during water treatment, the necessity of water treatment facilities, the possibility of temporary water treatment, etc., please read the following.
